(Spoilers Ahead) Like most Guild Wars 2 players, I've been anticipating Episode 2 of Season 3. The gap is content hasn't felt half as long this time around and I'm particularly excited about this episode.

Episode 3 kicks off where Legate Minister Caudecus revealed himself as the leader of the nefarious White Mantle, but his plans for the organization were thrown into disarray when one of their ancient gods, a mursaat called Lazarus, reappeared and accused him of being a heretic. 

Alongside the Living World update is a new PvP map called Eternal Coliseum. In this new conquest map, "players will fight for the favor of a roaring ravenous crowd inside an arena inspired by the real-world Roman Coliseum. Players attempt to gain control of three capture points. Each conquest map features a unique secondary objective that gives the map additional strategic, tactical depth and can change the tide of battle." 

With the update available now and considering Guild Wars 2 is technically free to play (although you'll need to part with your cash to play Living World) it's well worth diving in.
